The aim of this conference is to present research on recent developments within the health systems of the Nordic countries and China, and also to discuss their relevance for the future development of health services. Health services are not only important parts of the welfare system but also an important field of research and development. Health services research is conducted within many different scientific disciplines, such as economics, political science, public health, sociology and social medicine.
The conference will cover developments at the macro level of the health systems as well as the micro level of the health services. At the macro level, there will be a focus on the structure and the financing of health systems. At the micro level, the focus will be on the organization, management and integration of health services and related aspects of patient empowerment and health care communication. All of these themes will be illuminated from a Nordic as well as a Chinese point of view to promote exchange of ideas and mutual learning.

- Financing of health services
- Structure of the health system
